But my obsession was for good reason. Sugar Plum Fairy is gorgeous.
This past summer JulieG released the original Frosted Gum Drop polishes. I loved the polishes from that collection (Blueberry Fizz in particular). So, when I spotted the JulieG Holiday 2013 Frosted Gum Drops collection at Rite Aid I couldn’t help put pick up at least one polish!
Sugar Plum Fairy is a blackened royal purple packed with a ridiculous amount of shimmer that dries to a textured finish. The color is gorgeous! And the shimmer really stands out (even in the dark!).
The formula is a bit thick but not particularly difficult to work with. I used two coats in my swatches.
Before this polish I thought I had moved on when it came to textured polishes. But I’m totally smitten again! While none of the other colors in the JulieG line interest me I will definitely be picking up a few from OPI’s holiday offering.
The only place JulieG polishes are sold are in Rite Aid stores. But no worries! If you don’t have a Rite Aid store near you, the collection is available on the Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics website (which offers free shipping on orders over $20 as well as international shipping).
Of course, there are many (many!) swatches under the jump.
